Dogfight Over Guadalcanal recounts the events surrounding American Navy pilot James “Pug” Sutherland’s historic clash with the Japanese Imperial Navy’s top ace, Saburo Sakai, in the skies above the tiny island of Guadalcanal in the South Pacific.
Why did Pug not fire when he had his enemy in sight? How did Sakai get the better of him? A modern day recreation of the duel helps uncover the true story of the greatest dogfight ever.
